"Large hotel/lodge - functional"

2 nights Arrived 15 Aug 2010
"Compared to the smaller lodges that we had stayed in, Etosha Safari Lodge struggled for the personal touch. We had a friendly welcome but the service from that point on became more functional and lacked attention to detail.

There are now 65 bedrooms so obviously a lot of people and therefore the restaurant gets crowded. Couple of examples of poor service were: - three separate waitresses asked whether we would like soup - but none brought it to us!. In our bedroom a light was broken on the first night but not replaced.

Small things but indicative of the general "slackness".

PLUS points - Three separate swimming pools - very nice. Spacious rooms with views across to Etosha and a nice lit walkway from distant rooms to main lodge.
Very convenient for entry into Etosha through the Anderson Gate but be prepared for a small delay to complete (unnecessary) paperwork to gain entry into the park.

Etosha is geared up for self-drive and we spent three days driving around with no or little problem. We saw as much if not more than we would of had we used the expensive guided trips from the lodge, as we could decide where to go and how long to stay at each waterhole."

"Etosha Safari Lodge review"

2 nights Arrived 3 Aug 2010
"This was a lovely base for visiting Etosha. The room was very comfortable with a nice little balcony and a great view.

The main building was quite elegant with a wonderful balcony for sundowners! The food was tasty and the service was good.

On our second night we decided to have dinner at Etosha Safari Camp because we had been told that there would be live music there. The receptionist phoned to let them know we were coming and we were given a lift there and back by a member of staff from the Lodge. We just had to pay for our drinks at the camp. We had a very pleasant evening and the food and service was very good." See all these reviews: 13n in Namibia

"Comfortable base at Etosha Safari Lodge"

1 night Arrived 17 May 2010
"Despite being a large camp, the individual bungalows all look out onto woodland and are fairly well spaced. The rooms are well designed with small balconies, tea & coffee, good lighting, air con, etc.

Food was good, and staff were friendly and helpful without being fussy. The place was generally well organised.

Pity the place isn't in the Park." See all these reviews: 18n in Namibia

"Etosha Safari Lodge review"

1 night Arrived 25 Aug 2009
"The rooms were well appointed and the food was good - buffet starter and a choice of main course and puddings. This is a relatively new lodge and they are still working on the access road which is paved and which will greatly enhance the approach. The staff were welcoming and dealt swiftly with the fact that we turned up there for a second night, having left our luggage in our room believing that we were there for two nights! Fortunately, they had the capacity to accommodate us, phoned ahead to let Okaukuejo know what had happened, had our room cleaned ready for the night and were delightful about the whole misunderstanding.

Bonus was that they serve breakfast early, so you can be at the gate to Etosha as it opens." See all these reviews: 24n in Namibia; 11n in South Africa
